Visited the Countryman on a Saturday lunchtime, with friends. The welcome was perfectly balanced. We were made to feel welcome without being fawned over. The Landlord was careful to explain all the options on offer, without trying to push us toward any particular type of meal, as is often the case. We opted for starters and mains. Food arrived as...

We have visited this pub a few times as we have friends that live nearby. Every time they manage to accommodate us (large group of 11). It's a typical country pub with plenty of character, open log fire and plenty of helpful staff. The food order was taken and delivered without issue. The food, as per normal, was excellent. I...

A colleague and I were staying locally at Staverton Hall and we fancied a beer, The Countryman came highly recommended by the B&B owners, so we gave it a try. The welcome was very warm and didn't have that awkward "visitor in a local country pub" feeling. The selection of beers was impressive and of the best quality. Unfortunately we... More

Had dinner with colleagues here one night. A couple of us had steaks and a coupke haddock and chips. Very nice food, and decent sized portions. The pub has a nice old world atmosphere and the staff are friendly and efficient. I would definitely recommend this pub/resturant for eating and/or drinking.

Called here on our way home from a weekend away with friends. We were all really hungry and wanted a late Sunday lunch/early tea. We had a main course and dessert each plus a round of drinks and were quite happy with the bill of £78. Staff friendly and attentive without being intrusive. Food very good and the pub/restaurant was... More

Classic English pub, good decor, warm welcome! Seated straight away, excellent service.Drinks arrived as asked, food too. Advantage in them forgetting about my onion rings for my steak was because acted as mini second course. Steak was big! This place needs to invest in extra chef and more wait staff, sometimes pauses bit too long.
